I just did this last week using wintoflash. I didn't have an install cd or ISO, just a network share with all the setup files. Worked well enough to get the installation up and running, but I had to hunt down the cd2 files on the network in order to install the "extra components".

You'll find a nice tutorial here on how to put the install of Windows Server 2003 (and 2000, Server 2000 and XP) on a USB drive.

EDIT: Windows USB/DVD Download Tool only supports Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista, or Windows 7. More info.

I have been using Windows 7 USB Download Tool. Which is very simple to use. All you need is ISO and with this tool open, plug in USB drive - point the ISO file to USB and off you go! The utility is FREE from Microsoft Windows

Hope this helps!
